    Quad alt wiring help me please.

    I have a DC power 270xp that is internally regulated.

    I have a quad alt bracket for my 04 yukon coming.

    I want to just hook up 3 oem alts, that can be had for $100 ish and do 145/80 each, and the dcpower alt together.

    I am under the impression, that to do this I need to externally regulate the alts, using either a transpo box or a VCM, so that they all charge at the same voltage.


    Can I do this?

    Do I need to get different alts to do this?

    or is there another way to wire them all together?

    even though they are not the same alts, charging at different voltages?

    2 more questions, thanks for all the help already.

    So you just paralleled all of the wires together on all the harnesses?

    Where did you buy the harnesses from?
